achieve that reality much sooner . you're really saying the president obama's wasted the last four years? >> you betty has. there have been some things they have done ight. the cyber attacks have been great, but the real problem is for the last hundred years the world has gone to war over access to energy. we have now been given the energy of a dream of a lifetime. we have energy independence within our grasp. oil, natural gas. then what happens? we don't need to be in the middle of every civil war because they have their own energy. lou: we have not address the energy -- issue central to our foreign policy go about -- over last two decades, and it's about damn time our leaders started thinking about them. thank you both. we appreciate very much. thank you. much more on the president's day in israel and the tensions that are rising in the middle east. we will have much more throughout this broadcast. the president's gun-control agenda is on life support. we'll take a look at the real reason for its demise in tonight's "chalk talk". staying the course. fed chair ben bernanke says easing

. >>> high speed rail is a key component of president obama's domestic policy. four years ago, he announced to great fanfare that his administration was using $8 billion in stimulus funds as seed money to get high speed rail projects off the ground. an additional billion dollars would then be spent annually. the president even mentioned high speed rail again in his state of the union address just last month, saying it should be part -- key part of repairing america's aging infrastructure. keeping them honest, billions in federal tax dollars have been spent so far with very little to show for it. "360" has been investigating some of these projects like the billion spent in california without one shovel being put into the ground. or the tens of millions spent on high speed rail in vermont, where very few people ride trains to begin with. tonight, our investigation focuses on a project in the pacific northwest that cost a lot. you can decide if that expenditure was worth it. here's drew griffin. >> so now, for one of his last speeches in this position, the secretary of transportation, ray laho

of their forefathers, the land that god gave to the jews and that narrative is something that obama missed completely in his cairo speech and so on this trip you will notice that he's going to go to lay a wreath not just on the grave of yitzhak rabin, the great warrior of peace, but also on the grave of theodor herzl, the founder of the zionist movement. he is going to identify with the founder of the zionist movement. i have to tell you frankly that i organized four presidential visits by bill clinton to israel. we never thought it was important for him to put a wreath on the grave of theodor herzl, but this is what obama's going to do and it's part of that effort which you'll hear in the speech, i think to connect his understanding of israel's right to exist as a jewish homeland to its ancient roots in biblical israel. secondly i would expect that he will identify with israel's struggle for survival and its sense of insecurity in a region of turmoil around it and make it clear that he has their back, that he will be in the trench
what has been a completely dormant peace process for much of obama's first term. but one must make the point here that while this is about repairing the relationship, the issue of the peace process will be discussed but not in as great a detail, certainly on a former general basis. but there will be a further meeting over the weekend with the u.s. secretary of state john kerry returns. he will meet with prime minister netanyahu saturday night and more substantive issues about the peace process may emerge in that particular meeting. but for the next two days, the talks between obama and the 10 yahoo will center on what are seen as shared fears, shared interest -- talk between obama fearstanyahu, on shared -- iran developing a nuclear weapon and a situation in syria which is seen very much as a threat to stability. these will be the issues that will dominate the discussion. is a the studio with me senior political analyst. mike was sending the main ground that these two leaders want to syria.ill be iran and there is a difference in opinion as to how imminent a threat iran and its nuc
'll tell you what i saw was a great relationship between our two countries, the bonds between america and israel go way beyond president obama and prime minister netanyahu. started long before and will continue long after. but the president has been very warm towards the israeli people and we certainly appreciate it. >> now the president of the united states and the prime minister did not really come off fully on the same page on iran. just one way of putting this when the prime minister approached the podium, he talked about iran first. president obama mentioned it last. in fact, prefacing it with the word finally. and here's what they said. >> we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. and there's still time to do so. >> diplomacy and sanctions so far have not stopped iran's nuclear program. >> do you think the u.s. really has, i'll quote president obama, all options on the table when it comes to iran when you hear words like you heard today? >> well, erin, i think we have to look at the facts. and the facts are that words in washington or in jerusalem don't stop centrifuges and even

u.s.- israeli relations that were badly strained and president obama's first term? >> yeah, john, and you're right, it's an israeli-u.s. reset, and i think it was a great success. i think the president's speech was outstanding to the young israelis. i think it was full of realism and idealism. what he has done, he has walked away from the idea that israel has to stop building settlements, and as a reality there's not going to be any palestinian state as long as you have the president meeting with netanyahu, lieberman, and those folks in power, but i do think there's been a reset in relations with israel. but john with the whole middle east, look at muslim brotherhood in egypt, hamas, gaza, the jordanian king is in trouble, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't remember a time in my lifetime when there was a peaceful status quo in the middle east. it's always
think the great fear that the u.s. has, that the obama administration has, certainly the israelis have, if these weapons, if these stockpiles got into the wrong hands, they sense right now -- i think they still sense, that the syrian military of president bashar al assad, even though he's desperate and may be on his last leg, he's probably not going to use expensively chemical weapons. but they fear these weapons could get in the hands of terrorists, sympathizers to al qaeda, if it got into the hands of hezbollah which the u.s. and israel see as an extension in effect of iran, there would be deep concern. i don't think the israelis would allow that to happen. i think they would use military force to prevent that if necessary. and i suspect the united states would as well. so this is a really sensitive moment right now in the region. and it underscores how delicate these talks are between the president and the prime minister. >> all right. >> wolf blitzer, thanks so much. >> see you in "the situation room" a little bit later, wolf. >> 4:00 time for that. >> thank you. >> you know, the l

was removed, for sure. great elation that said obama hussain was removed, for sure. ddamthis was -- that said do hussein was removed, for sure. at the government level, the strategic agreement is still in place, but it would not be wrong to say that the government of see at the moment does not the american presence or influence as an integral part of its political calculation. it was a few years ago when political decisions were taken. they always factored in what the americans fought and that was certainly true. you probably remember when your the ambassador to baghdad. i do not think that is the situation now. i would even ventured to say that there is more wait for what the iranian regime things about political decisions in iraq, whether it is forming a cabinet any other major political decision. thathat does not mean americans have lost all possible influence. i think americans still have a considerable amount of soft power. i think they should use it not only with the government, and they are actually using it, to be fair, in support of civil society. i think in supporting the segment of
money in cyprus. connell: axel merck, great perspective, as always. thank you. dagen: president obama is losing his advantage to the gop and pulls when it comes to the economy. the president led the gop by 18 percentage points back then. the most recent poll has them leading by only four percentage points. we have four opinions editor joining us now from washington, d.c. you have the unemployment rate improving. everything is okay. why now? >> i do not think president obama helped him very much with the sequester the bay. when he said the government would suffer mightily for 2% spending cuts, i would add to that voters are increasingly wise to the fact that the federal government does not have resources o its big, bloated nature exists at the cost of all of us. dagen: is the danger, john, we continue on with unemployment still stubbornly high, still very close to 8%, that the longer we struggle as a economy, the more they will rely on the government to be there and provide a safety net. >> i think people are wise as to what is going on there. it is still a very abnormally high number
to cut social security and medicare? >> we saw president obama say last week, trying to build up good will for a grand bargain. we've seen the immigration bill. cenk: great. ginger, so first of all grand bargain is a horrible for progress you haves horrible. it cuts social security, medicare and dramatically cuts spending. that's what the president is saving up his capital for. that's awesome. the second thing you mentioned there was immigration reform, but ginger wouldn't it help republicans if the democrats passed immigration reform with the republicans saying it's ok latinos, they're on your side, just politically speaking. >> it could be an issue where they say do we lose, you know, you lose a wedge issue it's gone. one of the important things to remember here, too is that control of the senate, there are a number of democratic senators from conservative states, north carolina louisiana alaska. arkansas, up for election in 2014 and this is an effort to protect them, to keep them from having to vote on something that's not popular in their home state. cenk: that's absolutely right.
at the budget, we have not had a great increase in spending since obama took office except as goat two areas. unemployment insurance and food stamps. it is not because we liberalized the food stamp laws, we did not. it is because when you have a recession, you always get a much bigger deficit. two things happen. number one, tax revenues plunge. fewer people are working. number two, programs that we have enacted that are designed to increase during recessions, like unemployment insurance and food stamps, so that people do not starve and so that some money comes into the economy so that it does not turn into a depression. yes, the very large deficits incurred because of the depression. unemployment down to 5 -- unemployment down to 5% like it was in 2011. host: another tweet -- all, first of entitlements, meaning social security and medicare -- medicaid, i assume. there's nothing wrong with them, basically. social security is -- everybody says social security will have a problem i in -- in 2032. that is the assumption that economic growth will be under 2 .4%. if you assume it will be over that

[applause] all across america, governors are doing the innovative, new solution things that barack obama is opposing in washington, d.c. and the contrast couldn't be more vivid. i came this morning because i need your help, i think the country needs your help, the republican party and the conservative movement need your help. we're in a 50-year struggle for the conservative movement in the republican peat. let me be clear. the republican establishment is just plain wrong about how to approach politics. republicans in solving problems is plain wrong. are e who have been here raising the right kind of questions. monday the republican national committee will produce a report on the initial changes. that report will be an important first step. i want to female size, it is a first step. -- emphasize it is a first step. the first republican president posed the challenge for all of us in december 1862. lincoln wrote the following to the congress "can we do better? the dogmas of the quiet past are in adequate to the stormy present. the occasi

washington is the president of j street, jeremy, great to have you on the program. >> it's great to be here. >> let's talk about things that may get done or see some progress. president obama said to israeli tv last week, we think it could take over a year or so for iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don't want to cut it too close. that would seem to be something worth discussing, the president is setting out a time frame in which iran may have nuclear capabilities. one would think that would go over with the israelis who have long been ringing the alarmt bells. what is your assessment? >> both countries' intelligence is actually pretty much in line. there's not a lot of disagreement around where the iranian program is at. i think the question that has come up is what's the best strategy, what's the best timeline for implementing that strategy for preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. i think it's a good opportunity for the president and the prime minister to make sure they touch base, are on the same page, sanctions and diplomacy are the president's chosen

to jordan and they also spent a great deal of time that iran may pose in the reasoning if it develops nuclear weapons. president obama arrived in amman to a red carpet welcome and immediately had a lengthy meeting with the jordanian leader. >> today i'm announcing that my administration will work with congress to provide jordan with an additional $200 million in budget support this year as it cares for syrian refugees and jordanian communities affected by this crisis. >> before heading to jordan, the president spent a final morning in israel touring some of jerusalem's powerful cultural landmarks. at the grave of itzhak rabin. president obama also visited the holocaust memorial joining president peres and prime minister netanyahu as well as secretary of state john kerry as well. and in nearby bethlehem, president obama toured the church of the nativity. the biblical birth place of jesus. he did that with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas. the president then held one more scheduled meeting with benjamin netanyahu before taking that 35-minute flight to jordan. martin fletcher has

of the women's movement all that great activism that it produced and all of that we are seeing that directly play out today whether it's the election of barack obama or the continued advancement of women in congress so all that is a direct result of their activism. that being said there is a lot of work left undone and i think that we now spend three fourths of our entitlement money on people who are over the age of 30 and it used to be we spent three for some people under the age of 30 in terms of the amount of money and investment. it's not in terms of generational warfare but i think we need to have a conversation about how we are dividing our priorities. this is not a generation that expects to get those entitlements by the way. this is not a generation that has and he believes the government going to give them out money. >> host: the activism you talked about from the baby boomer generation. that's an activism that has trickled down to millennials or do you see them as more politically apathetic? >> guest: i think the activism of that generation was very much and still in the millennial

. but cruz says things are just going great. he told the dallas morning news, "if you look at the vote on sequester, the filibuster on drone strikes and the vote on defunding obama car, republicans have stood together for principle. and in doing so, i believe we are winning the argument." with that kind of fuzzy logic, it's no wonder the americans are running away from the party. 27% of americans can identify as republicans. that's the lowest since the beginning of 2010. and only 33% have a favorable view of the gop. but senator cruz thinks republicans are winning the argument? yikes. maybe the effort to reboot the party is just a lost cause. joining me now, ryan grim and jamal simmons. ryan, do tea party republicans really think they are winning the argument here or are they just avoiding reality as long as possible? >> well, a lot of tea party republicans don't think that the other side has an even remotely legitimate argument to bring to the table. so they think they are practically winning it by default. you know, a lot of them almost wonder what it is that these democrats are even
. >> you're in "the situation room." >>> it is one of the great debates in washington right now, can president obama and republicans reach a long-term agreement on reducing the deficit? >> the answer, different depending on which republican you ask. house speaker john boehner doesn't sound very hopeful. he's standing firm against the idea of increasing tax rates, increasing tax revenue. >> the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. if the president doesn't believe that the goal ought to be to balance the budget over the next ten years, i'm not sure we're going to get very far. and this is the whole issue. we have a spending problem here in washington, and it's time to solve the problem. >> we're hearing different things coming from various republicans, including senator bob corker. he's a republican of tennessee. he says he's optimistic about the possibility of what's called a grand bargain, and he's open to the idea of raising tax revenues to cut the deal under certain circumstances. senator corker's joining us n
heard from an example of why i'm optimistic about the future. scott walker is a great governor introducing great ideas -- [applause] all across america governors are doing the innovative, new, solution-oriented things which barack obama so -- is opposing in washington, d.c., and the contrasts couldn't be more vivid. but i came this morning because i need your help, i think the country needs your help, the republican party and the conservative movement need your help. we're in a 50-year struggle for the conservative movement in the republican party. let me be clear, the republican establishment is just plain wrong about how to approach its politics. [applause] the republican consulting class is just plain wrong about how to approach the politics. people who have been here like dave bossy, craig shirley, the work that alex is doing on concept of the new republic, all of these are beginning to raise the right kind of questions. monday the republican national committee will produce a report on the initial changes, and i commend chairman reince priebus for starting that process. tha
will they last? >> for as long as it takes. we'll be here until we get some agreement. >> great work by steve. it's not easy. you can hear more from that interview in we speak with steve coming up in the program. in the meantime, president obama is expected to arrive in israel later today to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a broad range of security issues. it's the first time he's visited the country as president and only the second time he's been to the middle east since taking office. we are joined now from jerusalem. what's the mood there ahead of this visit? >> hi there, kelly. both israelis and palestinians aren't expecting much from president obama's visit. the obama administration made it clear that it's a listening tour and he'll speak to israeli and palestinian officials to get the lay of the land of where they see the future of the region but that being said, secretary of state john kerry is also here at the moment in jerusalem. he will be making these meetings and these rounds as well. he'll stay in the region after president obama leaves. he'll come back to jerusalem, s
, is of great concern to israel when it's so close to their territory. >> shepard: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. put yourself in their shoes. those words from president obama to the israelis, talking about the treatment of palestinians who live in the west bank. on day two of the president's first trip to israel as president. he said that nation needs to make peas with the palestinians in order to ensure israel's survival and called for a two-state solution, one that gives the palestinians a land of their own. the president's comments come after he met with the palestinian leader, abass. he said israel has true partners in the leaders of the palestinian authority, but in a graphic reminder, the palestinian soldiered fired rockets on a city just hours before the president's visit to the west bank. >> children the same age is a my own daughters, who went to bed at night >> sat down with the israeli pratt and the talked of possible war with iran. >> that's right. perez was saying -- i was in the same garden with him today at his official residence, that the walked with president obama yesterd

[ speaking in foreign language ] you are not alone. >> this is the visit the israeli people wanted to see. >> it is an important speech. >> the centerpiece -- >> america will do what we must to prevent a nuclear-armed iran. >> president obama spoke directly. >> the speech that extended close to 50 minutes, president obama tackled the two-state solution. >> the united states is deeply committed. the time is now. >> no wall is high enough, no iron dome is strong enough. >> there is so much symbolism here. >> israel is not going anywhere. >> no doubt, this visit has been a success. >> get ready, america, for a brand new republican party. >> i know what our principles are. >> marriage is between one man and one woman. >> i know our party believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. >> the future of their party is at risk here.
this world isn't big enough for the both of them. but we assure you - it is. bites. little greatness. >> john: welcome back to "viewpoint." we asked you earlier online what was your favorite cpac movement. we're overwhelmed with replies and palin reading a joke about obama's teleprompter teleprompter on a teleprompter. if you have a comment for the show send it to us. we have "trump the race card." are you sick and tired of being called you're racist and you know you're not one. kay carl smith advices those who are called racist all the time but deflect racists all the time by calling themselves frederick douglas republicans. it was going fine until the q and a section then scott terry a member of the white students union at to towson university began making a case for segregation when smith tried to answer things went south you pun intended. >> when douglas escaped from slavery i think ten years after he escaped from slavery he writes a letter to his former slave master and said i forgive you. for all the things you did to me forgive him for giving food and shelter and all of those
san president obama about to sign a funding bill to keep the government running, but it keeps in place budget cuts to programs near and dear to his heart. some say it's great news to the private sector and recovery, with me, dan, from the "wall street journal," and rick unger from "forbes," welcome to you both. i tried to rile you up in the commercials. first you, dan. when you look at all of this, you have to ask yourself, did theepresident misread the g.o.p.? did he misread we'd be so scared that we would allow him to go through with his agenda, and when we made the bet the sun would rise the following morning, and it did, is he now in a tough predecision? >> yeah, he predicted an apocalypse with the sequester, and nothing bad happened, and the republicans called his bluff, and now i think he is in a tough position, sandra, because spending is going down. the sequester is taking effect. it was obama's intention to get federal spending to rise permanently from a historic degree of 21% of gdp. he wants 23% or 24%. it's going in the wrong direction now. sandra: saying more federal spend
of romney and obama and so on, it has, it has, it had the fox, fox news doesn't reach most of those people. look, fox gets great ratings. hates a loyal audience, but you know, look at the shows. bill o'reilly shows the most popular one on cable news. it gets 2 or 3 million people a night. that is not the electorate. we have a big country. and the conservative media only reaches a tiny chunk of it. >> i am looking at column you wrote in 2004. i am going to read the first couple of lines to see if you can tell the rest of the story. >> a few years ago michael moore who is now promoting a anti-president bush movie entitled fahrenheit 9/1, announced he had gotten the goods on me. indeed hung me out to dry on my own words. it was in his first best selling book, stupid white men. moore wrote he had once been forced to listen to my comments on a tv chat group. moore said and round up by bell lowing: these kids don't even know what the iliad and the odd i have. what did the rest of the column say? do you remember? >> i don't. >> you are accused him of lying? >> yeah. >> he said he called you. >>
, including our closest allies, france and great britain, pressuring the u.s. to do more to help and arm the syrian rebels. >> we do not stand, president obama has made it clear, that the united states does not stand in the way of other countries that made a decision to provide arms, whether it's france or britain or others. he believes that we need to change president assad's calculation. >> there has been disagreement in the past in, within the cabinet. we now know that hillary clinton and the c.i.a. director and others wanted some, and the defense team as well, leon panetta, wanted to arm the rebels. the president is still dead set against that. we don't know where secretary kerry comes down. is this an issue where the president is going to have to move under pressure from allies? >> i think this is an issue that the people at the white house wrestle with every single day. the human cost of assad's actions are horrific. and we struggle with the human toll and hearing these stories from the region, about innocent people that are suffering. so what the president has done is rejected thi
in the region. obama botched it. he not successful. he gave it and delegated it to the vice president. a failure. as a result, iraq is out of our hands. we have no influence. great sacrifice. i think that is sort of the most ironic tragedy of them all. >> bret: today there was an exchange between james rose an jay carney at the white house in which carney said that george w. bush was to be credited for taking out saddam hussein along with the u.s. military who were there obviously. is there an issue in looking back and seeing the good in iraq talking about it? >> the good is unmistakable. saddam regime, dynasty with this was the cruelest on the planet. sadistic government. it was the most aggressive. starting wars on all fronts. it's gone. iraq now is not a left. not exactly democratic. but it's not the hell that saddam iraq was. that is undeniable. the problem for americans the sacrifice was huge. and tragic. and strategic advantage which we hoped to gain to have ally in iraq was squandered at the end of the surge. >> bret: i spent 12 trips to iraq over time covering the pentagon and white hous
" begins right now. >>> our team this morning is katherine rossman and chris, great to see you here. >> let's start with president obama at the start of a historic middle east visit. there's a new sense of urgency because there are mounting concerns that the syrian government may be using chemical weapons on its own people. listen to congressman mike rogers. this is in the situation roof last night with wolf blitzer. >> i have a high probability to believe that chemical weapons were used. we need that final verification. we need to step up in the world community to prevent a humanitarian disaster. >> let's bring in our john king right now, chief national correspondent traveling with the president. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning. syria issue, the iran issue, big concerns for the president. odd for a u.s. president to be in israel while on the issue list will be down a bit in part because of what's happening in syria. syria neighbors israel and much of the intelligence the u.s. has been getting comes from the israeli government. it's the president's first overseas trip in the s

? a message to president obama? or could it have been a message to mahmoud abbas, who, yes, is the president of the palestinian authority and the leader of the fatah political movement, but he has great differences and a great internal rivalry within the palestinian territories with hamas. that is one of the big questions and one of the big obstacles to getting a peace process going again. president obama did not spend too much time on this in his first term, but he is determined to focus on it in the second term, and listen to the optimistic tone here, despite the big differences. >> we can not give up on the search for peace, no matter how hard it is. as i said with prime minister netanyahu yesterday, we will continue to look for steps that both israelis and palestinians can take to build the trust and the confidence upon which lasting peace will depend. >> reporter: so the president saying, let's get back to the table, but, carol, the question is, will either party, will the palestinians come back, will the israelis come back if the palestinians first don't -- will the palestinians come b
inspired the world with your leadership. from a grateful nation to a very great leader. god bless america. god bless israel. [ applause ] >> thank you. thank you, president peres. i now have the privilege to advise the president of the united states, honorable barack obama, to receive the presidential award of distinction from the president of the state of israel, his excellency, shimon peres. and now we will begin the confirment ceremony of the presidential award of distinction. please, be seated. president obama has been nominated for this award for the following reasons. barack obama served as the 44th president of the united states of america. he was elected to his first term in 2008, capturing the world attention and the heart of the american people. in 2012 he was elected to a second term. barack obama's presidency has been distinguished by his need to lead an ongoing fight for equality in the united states of america and for the promotion of democratic values, human rights, solidarity, and peace all over the world. in 2009, he was awarded the nobel prize for his special contributio
it was vital that president obama went to israel at this critical moment. it was a great speech and reaffirmation of a fundamental relationship in particular that he recognized that israel is a jewish home land and a right to exist and self-defense in face of both a iranian nuclear weapons program. it is a very unstable situation in syria and in the region. this was a vital important moment for president obama, both to reassure the israeli people that we are their most vital ally, that we have an unshakeable relationship but also to urge forward a peace process that could help stabilize the region. >> dr. brzezinski, off of what senator coons just said, we have this decades old issue of trying to come up with a peace settlement within israel. yet, right now, the area, the fuses around israel so volatile and fast burning. syria, jordan, iran, egypt. talk about the degree of difficulty at this moment of trying to put a peace package together within israel. >> you know, the difficulty is that when there is no unrest and danger on the outside, there is no sense of urgency that peace
for that. mr. ambassador, great to see you. thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you, uma. >> let me begin by saying that many israelis have been very skeptical about president obama's security interests in israel and up to now, a frosty relationship with benjamin netanyau. why should mr. netanyahu trust president obama now? >> you're right, uma, there was a lot of skepticism and even suspicious about president obama's relationship with israel and with the israeli prime minister. we have had four very tense years. but i know in america, you say that there is no second chance to make a first impression. well, the president got that second chance and i think he took it i think his visit to israel, as far as the feeling and the respect and the emotion of the israeli people was a great success. it was a very impressive charm offensive. he reached out to the people. he touched every nerve and every fiber of israeli society with his words. and i must say that when air force one took off, it carried with it a totally different president, as far as at least the emotions, the expectations
president. he got a great photo-op and will get a few more during his trip. this is trip where the symbolism and politics is very different from e private conversations. i think obama bringstwo very tough, unpalatable messages to e israelis. number one, don't even think about using military force against iran's nuclear weapons program. and number two, you need to make more concessions to the palestinians to try and reach the two-state solution. so i think the private talks are going to be very, very tough. meliss wow! so, given that, i mean let's move over to syria for a second. one of israel's top officials saying, it is quote, apparently clear the chemical weapons were recently used in syria, but at the same time, the obam administration says, there is no evidence to support that there was a chemical attack. so you're talking about they're at odds on these other issues. they're at odds on syria as well it sounds like? >> i think we don't know enough facts about what happened. the assad regime claimed the opposition used chemical weapons. the opposition claimed the assad regime used them. o
is a great guy. >> bill: yes i have always admired him very much. we have the whole team here. president obama leaves wednesday for the middle east. his first visit to israel as president. he gave an interview to israel too the other day where he talked about one of the things he misses most. he lives not so far from where you live, jennifer. i forget the name of the park -- >> stanton park. >> bill: right. so he lived in the hood here and he liked to just walk around, pop into restraints can't do that anymore. >> obama: sometimes i have this fantasy that i can put on a disguise and wander through teleaeve and go to a bar and have a conversation or go down to a university and meet with students in a setting where it wasn't as formal and we're going to try to find as many opportunities as i can to interact with the israeli people, but you have tapped into something that chases at me. >> bill: i have heard the first lady say the same thing, wouldn't it be nice to go for a walk? no, there was a time. eleanor roosevelt used to do that, but no longer. and imagine having
the economy was contracted. greece is having our great depression of the late 1920s. >> wow. >>> moving on to washington now. president obama's renewed push for a grand bargain may be showing some early signs of paying off, at least with one top republican. senator bob corker of tennessee says he could envision raising tax revenue if democrats embrace big changes to medicare and social security. he is at odds with other members of his party including house speaker john boehner who is ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think, by the way, there is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republicans, if they saw true entitlement reform would be glad to look at tax reform that generates additional rveevenues. that means closing loopholes and arranging our tax system so that we have economic growth. >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. if we do, it will be between the two parties on capitol hill. the president got his tax hikes on january the 1st. the talk about ra
and george, some well-earned time off. great to have amy robach and paula faris here and we have some video to show you. it's air force one just landing in israel after an overnight flight from washington, d.c., president obama now making his first official visit to the country as president, his second, in fact, to the middle east and saying as he arrived and i do quote "it's good to get away from congress." >> we don't really need to say anything more than that. >> no, we don't.
all the ethical issues. and that's why i think it's a great area for debate. >> lisa, thank you for that. >>> president obama's first trip to israel as commander in chief under way. cnn's erin burnett is going "out front" on the story. >> we're going to be talking to the man of the moment as the "jerusalem post" dubbed bennett, when it all came down to it in the israeli government, he is one of the top guys. he'll be our special guest this evening and we're going to talk about a man that mayor bloomberg in new york called ridiculous. he called him ridiculous because this man has dared to defy him on large sugary drinks. that man is howard shultz, the ceo of starbucks. >> thank you. up next, wolf, it's his turn to respond to the ridiculous and a prom date like no other how one hopeful young man got this top model's attention. (dog) larry,larry,larrryyy. why take exercise so seriously,when it can be fun? push-ups or sprints? what's wrong with fetch? or chase? let's do this larry! ooh, i got it, i got it! (narrator) the calorie-smart nutrition in beneful healthy weight... includes
that. i'll tell you a couple of reasons why. senator stabenow had a chart about how great the economy or the fiscal situation of the country looked about the tile president bush took office. well, the last month of president obama's -- president clinton's term in office was meggive growth -- was negative growth. and i think that was the fishes month of negative -- and i think that was the first month of meggivmonth ofnegative growth it years. president obama didn't inherit a recession. former president bush did have a recession in his second year or so of his term and he took action and whatever, the economy bounced back and by the time president clinton took office, the economy was growing, and it's continued to fr grow throuh the decade. we don't know all those forces. we play politics about it, but nobody really knows precisely what moves an economy, whether it was something ten years ago or something ten months ago because of the difficulty. we just make guesses and we just do our best judgment. so here we go. in early 2000, i'm on the budget committee, and mr. greenspan testifies
. >> i like it. you get your chance, take it. >> okay. we will start there actually. president obama touched down in the west bank city of ramallah this morning and great by president abbas of the palestinian authority kicking off the second leg of his four-day visit to the middle east. today, the israel army confirmed four rockets were fired from the gaza strip landing in southern israel and causing some damage. the rocket strike, which has not been claimed by any palestinian militant group, is the second violation of the cease-fire that ended the clash between the hamas and israel this past november. yesterday, the president's meeting with israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu focused on another threat to israel in the region. it runs nuclear ambitions. >> we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the region, a threat to the world, and potentially an threat to israel. all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> richard, help somebody out at home who is watching this. the president of the unit
better relations with the arab world. there was a great deal of hope, including in ramallah. i was there the other day. there were protests against president obama. there are posters all around ramallah, criticizing this trip. pictures of the president burned, protests for several days. to the point you made, just this morning he went to the israeli museum. he will come back to jerusalem to give a speech to the israeli people. just a few hours in ramallah with the palestinian president. there's a lot of questions in the palestinian leadership. again it's a fractured palestinian leadership. is this president now so desperate to repair relations with israel that he won't be an honest broker? >> we know that expectations at the white house are low, trying to keep expectations low for the outcome of this trip. we know the president is there in a listening capacity, but how is he working -- is he working to facilitate new peace talks? >> reporter: yes, but i think is the correct answer there, christine. if you talk to israeli officials, palestinian officials, white house officials,
and their spouses who are less easily to identify, but we've got to try. >> reporter: exactly right, yeah, great stuff. >> megyn: got to pay forward. trace, thanks. it's been three years to the day since barack obama signed the health care law and only a few months until it fully takes effect. today we'll look at claims that big parts of the system will not be ready when that day comes and what does that mean for you? and kelly's court takes up the case of a single mom fired on charges of gross misconduct for selling girl scout cookies at work, have you ever done this for your kid? think again. plus, outrage is growing after a reality tv show uses a painful memory in vietnam as a set piece in their show. oh, how they appear to celebrate this downed b-52. our own bob beckel was one of those most upset. he joins us to explain why he's so mad and why he thinks this is so disrespectful and why he's not buying the network's excuse. >> i'm so outraged by this i can't believe it. cbs is idiotic, stupid, the idea they would-- don't blame it on young producers, if cbs can't do better than that, half the

us. good to see you k.t. >> great to see you. >> arthel: before i ask you your overall grade. i want to go down to specific subjects and iran wanting to get nukes. to diffuse some of the tension between president obama and netanyahu. of course president obama is saying to netanyahu, look, do what you got to do, we got your back. how do you see it moving forward? >> i think this was a successful trip. what he did, what president obama did was to give netanyahu a green light. do what you got to do and we've got your back. they have said that before but in the press conference, i thought was very revealing. they kept repeating it. president obama then said we're going to give you a lot more assistance, military assistance to deal with that. netanyahu thanked him for it and said at the end of the press conference that he couldn't resist, now for all of those, i want to make sure you understand the president has really done something significant. he is going to give us the military assistance that we need. i think to translate it all, netanyahu, you do what you got to do. you've got a gre
's movement, all that great activism they produced, and that -- all of that, we're seeing that play out today. whether it's the election of barack barack obama or continued advancement of women in congress. there's a lot of work left undone, and i think that there's -- we now spend 3/4 of our entitlement money on people who are over the age of 30. used to be we spent 3/4 on people under the age of 30. it's not a question of generational warfare, but i think we need to have a conversation about how we're dividing our priorities. this is not a generation that expects to get those entitlements. my general has any belief the government is going to give them that money -- >> host: well, the activism you talked about, from the baby-boomer generation, that activism that has trickled down to millenials or do you see them as more politically apathetic? >> guest: i think the activism of that generation was very much instilled in the millenials, the children of the boomers, as we were growing up. the generation of people who read us the news, and taught this idea of values and the way that you should be

. jenna: 23, that is for sure. great to see you as always, thank you. jon: a leading republican lawmaker is raising serious questions about the obama administration's handling of the benghazi terror attacks and the aftermath. senator lindsey graham accuses the white house of telling injured survivers of those attacks to quote, be quite and not share their stories. now he's willing to do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this happen. >> i'm going to hold up the pweufs the senate until we get the survivors on record. i've talked to a couple. their story is chilling. they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. jon: let's talk about it with bret baier the anchor of special report and a guy who has done a great deal of reporting on what happened in the benghazi situation. there are 33 survivors of the attacks who were evacuated from the diplomatic facilities there, bret? >> reporter: yes, jon, a lot of them fall into the cia category and probably will not be heard from, undercover agents. you do have at least four state department officials, state depa
you see president obama and prime minister netanyahu making their way to the podium for the joint news conference in jerusalem. it's about 8:30 there. let's take a listen. >> mr. president, barak, it is a great pleasure for me to host you here in jerusalem. you've graciously hosted me many times in washington. so i'm very pleased to have this opportunity to reciprocate. i hope that goodwill and warmth of the people of israel has already made you feel at home. >> very much so. >> we had an opportunity today to begin discussing the wide range of issues that are critical to both our countries. and foremost among these is iran's relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. mr. president, you have made it clear that you are determined to prevent iran from developing nuclear weapons. i appreciate your forthright position on this point. i also appreciate that you have noted that you have acted to thwart this threat, both through determined diplomacy, and strong sanctions that are getting stronger yet. notwithstanding our joint efforts and your great success in mobilizing the international community
